Adam Michaels, Prem Krishnamurthy, and Rob Giampietro will speak about their multidisciplinary practice at design studio Project Projects. With a conceptual and critical approach to visual form, the studio engages in varied modes of production across a wide range of media and scales. Each of the three principals will discuss a sampling of current projects, preoccupations, and passions—synthesizing design and editorial work in a self-initiated paperback book series; new modes and venues for curation; and tracing the critical implications of technology on the practice of writing.
Project Projects is a design studio focusing on print, identity, exhibition, and interactive work with clients in art and architecture. The studio was founded in 2004 by Prem Krishnamurthy and Adam Michaels; Rob Giampietro joined as a principal in 2010. The studio has been a Finalist twice in the Cooper-Hewitt National Design Awards (2009 & 2011) and has received numerous distinctions, including the ADC Bronze Medal, TDC Communication Design Award, I.D. magazine’s 2007 Design Distinction Award, the Art Directors Club Young Guns 5 Award, and several Society of Publication Designers merit awards.
